Drop down on this page to the January 6 thread with a frowny face that I started. That thread deals with the subject and has pictures of the (only) "banana" that will work. I can't get the boot off my plugs -- they are too tight -- but there just isn't enough room for screw-on wire holders. At least that's what I remember, but it's been a few months, and there were LOTS of things to connect, what with the audio, the projector, the computer, etc. I think Radio Shack is either steering you to the wrong plug, or they are confusing the screw expander with the method of attachment of the wires to the plug.
